in the direction of massachusetts, where governor mitt romney, back in 2006, rolled out something that's very very similar to this. of course, it's way, way smaller in massachusetts, because you're just dealing with one state. but nonetheless, the whole of obamacare, as we saw in the election last year, is based on what mitt romney did, and that's one of the things that caused him so much problem in the campaign. in massachusetts, at the end of the first month, how many people do you think signed up? it was 123, so it's not very many at all. at the end of the first year, when it became clear to everybody in massachusetts that you have to sign up for healthcare, 36,000 had signed up. but the really interesting figure up in massachusetts is the 36,000, so one fifth of that number signed up at the 11th hour. almost to the last minute of the 11th month. and so that's what the white house is going to say today. that there's time. it has happened before. and it will probably happen this way. but it will be interesting to see what these changes will be from president obama. and i think when you have the
that massachusetts enacted in 2006 under governor romney. >> we can reasonably expect the numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3%. or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in the bay state that people tend to research and consider their options talk things over with their families before making a purchase. >> joining me now, from "the washington post," and professor of economics at mit who worked on the massachusetts health care reform law and -- the affordable care act. okay, professor, it is up to you to tell us how -- the affordable care act is doing, compared to the early days of the massachusetts law. >> the big issue, it is too early to make a strong conclusion. the bottom line is people don't sign up until they have to. >> we are doing better than massachusetts. as secretary sebelius said .3% in massachusetts. 1 1/2% of the federal level. goal of 7 million. that is not a relevant comparison. relevant comparison happen in march. we need new focus on not the week to week and day-to-day, to date. >>
. it's got to be better. and it will be. take a look at that experience in massachusetts. the senator from california talked about that earlier. during the first month of enrollment in massachusetts, 123 people signed up. in the first 30 days. by the end of the year, though, 36,000 had signed up. the number of uninsured young people went from 25% to 10% within three years. massachusetts today, because of the leadership of governor mitt romney and the cooperation of the democratic legislature in that state, has nearly universal health insurance coverage. however the roll-out wasn't without some problems, just as ours s. thours is. the current governor said there were a series of web site problems. he also said the web site was a work in progress for the first few years. there were outages during peak times and problems searching for providers. i recently met with a doctor from boston. he's one of the best. he said, people in massachusetts can't remember what it was like before. they can't remember what it was like before people had health insurance. this doctor is an oncologist. he dea
.4% of consumers are going to sign up. if you look at massachusetts during its first month -- and, mr. president, i'm sure you're aware of this being in new jersey close to massachusetts -- only 0 .3% or 123 people signed up for coverage out of the 36,000 who ultimately signed up in the first year. so let's be clear, we all wanted to see bigger numbers, but the affordable care act, member -- act numbers are four times better than what massachusetts did in its first month, and if you talk to the people of massachusetts, they love their health care plan. and our plan is based on their plan. by the way, a republican plan. hundreds of thousands have started the enrollment process, and i'm one of them. i've created an account, and i'm going to go shopping and buy my plan. but i'm taking my time because i have some time, til december. i'm going to discuss it with my husband. we're going to decide what's best for us, and we're going to sign up. you know, i think it was the secretary sebelius said this isn't like buying a toaster. this is a commitment for a year, and you have got to take your time. so don'

, for example, noted that in the first month of sign-ups for the massachusetts version of health reform, only 100 people signed none the whole first month. but in massachusetts, eventually the glitches got ironed out, and enrollment numbers went up. and now in massachusetts, there is essentially universal coverage. that state is essentially the template for our national numbers. but the numbers out today, 100,000 people signed up in the first month. in addition, another one million people were determined to be eligible for getting a new play in marketplaces for health insurance. but they have not chosen a plan yet. the overall idea is for everybody to get insurance over time. the republicans are rejoicing in the early low numbers, praying nobody else signs up to get health insurance, but we'll see how it goes. history tells us these things do tend to start slowly. also in washington today, you just heard on "all in" with chris hayes, they also saw the introduction of a landmark new piece of federal legislation that would try to protect women's access to abortion, protecting it, not curtailing
of a higher decent. in this situation there massachusetts was not any significant issues >> views are not protected. >> private views are not protected. >> nicole are there any public view issues. >> it's protected but not private. >> okay. any comments? >> i think ultimately this comes to two views and as the acting da said the views are not protected. i'd make a motion to uphold >> deny the appeal. >> uphold the permit on the boos that the planning and code - >> i'm sorry what. >> don't error. >> thank you for correcting me. i'm sorry >> it's okay. >> we have a motion to uphold this permit on the basis it's code compliant. on that motion to uphold commissioner fong is absent (calling names) thank you. the vote is 4 to zero and the permit is upheld on that basis. >> no other business. okay. the meeting is adjourned. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ hello and welcome to this presentation. i'm san francisco purrs since that time we've helped people clean up their criminal records. we created this to help you understand how this worked. we'll plan or explain all the steps. after watching
numbers. but let's remember what happened in massachusetts with romney care. he was their candidate last year. >> i've heard of him. >> when he was governor of massachusetts, he had romney care. only 123 people signed up in the first month of the massachusetts health care law. 123. that's all that signed up. or just 0.3% of the total who signed up by the end. 20% signed up in the last month of enrollment. so just look what happened with romney care. the potential head of their party last year, they had less than 1% in the first month, 0.3% to be exact. and in the last month, 20% because as it gets closer to the due date, that's when people make a rush. it's almost like christmas shopping. >> exactly. yeah. >> so it takes time. and there's a demand. we see a similar trend nationally. >> we do. and, you know, we all have to be frustrated with the website problems. and i'm sure there were some missed opportunities there, but in terms of being on track for this law to work and for people to sign up by the date they need to sign up, we are still on track to be able to make things work. and ev
of this irresponsibility and the negligence of this company in massachusetts. a lawsuit was filed recently in nevada. two young boys were allegedly impacted significantly as a result of this medication that was really bad medication. unless the entire united states senate bends to that one senator's wish -- the one that voted "no" -- he will force this body to jump through hoops and work through the next several days wasting time to finish this crucial drug safety bill. but we're going to finish the bill. we're going to finish that bill. it's important for our country, and i can't let one senator dictate what goes on here in the senate. mr. president, following leader remarks, the senate will be in a period of morning business for two hours. republicans will control the first half, and the majority will control the final half. following that morning business, we will vote on the adoption of the motion to proceed to h.r. 3204, the pharmaceutical drug compounding bill. this is expected to -- i hope that in fact is the case. if thats case that is the case,e will said to what will happen subsequent to thasm
debate during america's 1787 constitutional convention. massachusetts convention delegate and america's fifth vice president, gary, stated, the origination clause, was quote, the cornerstone of the accommodation, end quote, of the great compromise of 1787 that persuaded a majority of the states to ratify the constitution. stated differently, but for the origination clause there would have been no constitution and no united states as we know it. the origination clause was that important. virginia delegate and co-author of our bill of rights, george mason, explained opposition to senate tax originations when he declared, quote, the senate did not represent the people but the states and their political care. it was important, therefore, it should tax the people. again, the senate is not like the house of representatives chosen frequently and obliged to return frequently among the people. they are chosen by the states for six years, will probably settle themselves at the seat of government, will pursue schemes for their agran diesment, and taking advantage of their impatience at the close
the gentleman from massachusetts. have other things you want to add? >> i think i got my last word in. >> earlier this morning, at the beginning of the hearing, chairman eyes asked about the anonymous shopper function. you said you had decided to direct cgi to disable because of defects. >> yes. >> with the gentleman yield question mark >> no. phrase, you were handed a document. it shows that there were no defects in the system. has blown up a box over the other statements made on the right-hand side of the box that 9:22.ays i have given you a sheet there that is clean from those boxes without the original blowups on their. do you have that? >> i think so. >> that is the original document. we refer me the last statement there starting with the defects identified? criticaltreated as target fixes for 9-12. >> that is what you testified for? you had found defects. yes. >> you decided to focus on compare. >> yes. the opportunity to choose the more critical function, plan compare is much more critical in the path of the consumer being able to enroll in health care as compared to the abilit
reporters that when the state of massachusetts passed its own law, enrollment there started very slowly, just 123 people in the first month. >> we know experience in the bay >> wooduff: mary agnes carey of kaiser health news is with us again tonight. it's an editorially independent news organization. mary agnes, welcome back to the program. so what did we learn today from the administration's official release of these numbers? >> well, they're lower than expected. administration officials for days, for weeks, have been trying to dampen expectations. these numbers would be great, and they certainly were not. of the 10 6,000 people that have enrolled, you have about a quarter of those through the federal exchanges, and those are in 36 states. that's really a big chunk of states that are being run by the federal government, the exchanges, and then the remaining three-fourths were three the state exchanges set up in about 15 states and the district of column ja. >> woodruff: three to one that number reflects the state exchanges. to what extension is this consistent with what the administrat
there's nothing before the states office the duo minute massachusetts has the component side of it but there's the fee side it would be tough to have a system be approved on secretaries day to be awarded the privilege to execute a contract and the system to be up in a couple of years >> just is quick question to follow up. the question about an all mail in election you have to be enabled by the state; right? no matter what type of election whatever it is it has to be approved by state >> that goes back and forth. i've heard it through the vote by mail but really it might be r be a question formerly to the city attorney's office >> complaegz any other questions i hope you get some rest and a mr. rose budget analyst report. >> yes. as shown this tables 2 and 3 those tables are on pages 17 and 18 of our report. the proposed cost a as indicated would remain at the same rate of $400,000 plus and 3 hundred plus for maintenance and license agreement and ross the rates that are currently charges under the existing 2007 to 2013 agreement. we also point out over the 3 year shown i
and the delay of the navy property. obviously the navy property massachusetts has been through idealize as we talked about the navy clean up. we have to change the schedule to move the project forward. most significantly you know, we really requested that the developer reorganize the phasing to enable al lettuce griffith to proceed. when we approved the project in 2010 we negotiated that the alice griffith revitalization would be linked up for the phase two market rate development. while it seemed smart tempting at the time it wouldn't allow the developer to start without doing alice griffith we didn't anticipate the display that actually prevented us from starting on alice awhile we wait for the navy he property. the new phasing is responding to the decouple of of the shipyard and the alice griffith now with the 349 could precede. the additional piece i wanted to mention i know the - this phasing schedule is something that must get reviewed by the california economical quality act we're working with the sequa to identify anything that my create additional economical impacts. generally, we do
enshshrined now. they'll probably get this right basbased on what happened in massachusetts. a w year from now we are at mid stormidterm elections. >> you mean politics has something to do this wit with t. >> we have the democrats that have stood by the president steasteadfastly and they have sd right by him it's not about him. the man is not running for public office again. it's about them. a couple of weeks ago the republicans we didn't think would get licked. licked -- elected. that is what i was going to say. >> two weeks ago everybody was talking about the government shutdown and the president was in grave danger. >> if you are a elected representative in louisiana a republican state. you are very nervous. if you see the president has a approval rating of 39% you wonder how you will get on when you go on the still to come starting early january. >> it's not just the republicans that are concerned about the roll out of the affordable care ability. act. even though they are not for it. the white house has been disappointed since day one about the roll out and they had to spell out the numbe
programs like medicare part d come and the massachusetts help reform that was obamacare's predecessor. most people tend to sign up for coverage closer deadlines, so that is what the administration hopes will vindicate them after the first month, which did not go well. host: but if the deadline is not until march, why were expectations so high to begin with? people do not have to sign up until later. guest: that is right here at march is a key deadline because it is obviously the end of a six-month enrollment period. the other date is december 15, which is when people choose plans if they want them to kick in in january. there are a lot of people losing their coverage right now and they're going to want to remain insured, and for them, the middle of december is the crucial deadline. the reason that that is tough for the administration is it comes only two weeks after the deadline, where they say they're going to have the website fix, which is the end of this month, so if they cannot have healthcare.gov up and running, functioning enough for millions of people to actually buy their health pla
payment. >> maggie, i think numbers are consistent with enrollment numbers, that massachusetts reported, and that we feel are the most accurate. payment is not due until december the 15th. one of our concerns is that would give you the most reliable information and we are trying to make sure we cross-reference this with our insurance partners, but we know that some people may enroll in a plan temporarily and then decide to switch plans when they find out more information, so are going to give you the best numbers we can, but it is not broken down by numbers. by the 15th of december we will be able to begin to tell you how many people actually have eight for the first month of coverage. >> great. next question, please. if you would like to ask a question you may press star one. just a moment, please. >> thank you for taking the question. it looks like in florida that about one 1000th of the eligible insured population has accepted a plan. i'm wondering what you would say to folks to encourage them to keep trying i'm a particularly not beene who have waiting all those years for insurance
in massachusetts with fewer website problem. >> they need 7 million people signed up by the spring. president obama today was saying that he did not think that this would happen with individuals kicked off their plan. he knew some plans wouldn't meet standard but go on obama care and find better deals. if you look at what was in the federal register, if you look at president obama's own comments from the health care forumhe kn lose coverage, whether they liked it or not. can you explain, as an architect of a similar plan and somebody who helped write the affordable care act, what was supposed to happen with those 7 to 9 million americans who were going to be kicked off the plan whether or not they liked it or not? >> first of all the number's like 6 million. millions of people whose plans wouldn't qualify. the idea is if they were low income they'd be able to go into the exchange and get tax credits and they will once the website is working and they can see that. the concern people have losing plans would be offset by seeing beneficial tax credits they'd get. some people who had substandard plans w
%, what do i care. it worked in massachusetts. 98.5% of all massachusetts citizens have health care. he bought this, it's his. he ought to make it work. it can work but not with this website. >> the one issue is not what he's fixing or, in my view politically isn't the biggest problem, it's the fact this promise he made dozens of times isn't true. >> that's a function of the website failure. the website doesn't fail -- these insurance people's policies getting rejected, they are terrible. they are $50 a month and you get nothing. >> people say that. being a victim of such a cancellation and having a good policy, i'm inclined in my anecdotal instance to say, not so much. >> isn't part of what's missed, that comment from john boehner when john boehner said this is a government takeover of the health care system. >> the best run health care delivery service in the world with 47 million uninsured. >> there's that, but also the idea it's the government's fault. what we're talking about here is the fact that the private insurance companies and the private company that set up the website has c
. again, context is important. in massachusetts when they went through their health care implementation, only 0.3% of people signed up in the first month. >> and we're looking at 1.3. an improvement over massachusetts. absolutely right. >> i think people take their time to sign up. it is unacceptable that the website isn't working. we made that clear in our lunch today with dennis mcdonough. but the perspective is important on that issue as well because most people do wait until they've take an look at all of their options, until they get closer to the deadline before they sign up. it's an issue, but it's being solved. >> so let me ask you, if you can give me insight in how the meeting went, would you say the house democrats and senate democrats who were there are all in line and as optimistic as you are? was there pushback? >> the democratic party is a big tent. i think he heard people that were supportive of states in which it's gone well like connecticut, and he heard a lot of pushback today. there's no excuse for the state of the website, but he did say -- dennis mcdonough said it i
, massachusetts. at the time of the american revolution, this was slave country. slavery was legal here, just as it was in each of the 13 colonies... but the revolution brought new laws to this land, and here in this farmhouse, one slave began to test those laws. her name was mum bett. for decades, she served meals in these rooms. then she heard talk around the table of a new constitution that said all men were free. so mum bett decided to act. she ran away to the nearby town of stockbridge, where she convinced a young lawyer to help her file a suit. other slaves had sued their masters before, but this case was different. mum bett was challenging the very existence of slavery in massachusetts. her argument was that slavery violated the most basic principle of the american revolution, that all human beings were created equal. it was a powerful argument, and she won. mum bett's victory echoed across the young nation. within two decades, every state in the north was on the road to abolition, and this political transformation was accompanied by a religious one as an evangelical revival spread acr

military and veterans roundtables in massachusetts with holly petraeus, head of cfpb head of office of affairs. one issue for veterans is a growing scam involving the v.a.'s aid and attendance benefit, the benefit that helps cover the cost of nursing homes and in-home health aides for our disabled vets who don't have many resources. now, from what i understand the details of this scam are really grisly. a company offers to help a veteran sign up for the benefits. if the company determines the veteran has too many assets to qualify for the benefits, it tries to hide some of those assets by moving them to irrevocable trust or annuity that not only violates the spirit of the program, it often ends up hurting the veteran. the company generally charges huge fees, takes a fat cut of whatever financial product they end up selling to the veteran and moves the assets where the vets can't easily reach them meaning the veteran is actually in much worse financial shape than before the person applied for help. i understand one case where a veteran got set up with an annuity that wouldn't start p
. it was a terrible thing. it happened because of one individual company in massachusetts that was not being inspected or regulated, and they had a bad batch of drugs. >> you mentioned that montana company in the article and tweet yesterday on the procedural vote in the senate tweets that senate passes key vote to regulate pharmacy response to deadly meningitis. the outbreak started in massachusetts last year. why wasn't the fda responding to these sort of pharmacies? >> well, there was somewhat of a gray area in the law. the fda was responsible for these pharmacies, but there was a court ruling that had put some of their responsibility in to question. since outbreak the fda has been involved more heavily in inspections. but this law is to clarify that and creates a new voluntary category, which is somewhat controversial allowing some of these large pharmacy manufacturing facilities to register themselves and submit themselves to more fda scrutiny similar to the kind a traditional drug manufacturer undergo. >> who are the bill's main sponsors in the senate? >> in the senate it's tom harkin, the head o
will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled month.3% in his first we know from experience in the baystate that people tend to research and consider their options before making a purchase. this data represents only one month into a sustained six-month enrollment and outreach effort. we are confident as more people learn about these options that more will find a plan that meets their needs and their budget and more will enroll in coverage. as we continue this outreach effort and as we make continuous improvements to health care.gov, we have every reason to expect more people to enroll. as of this first time, more than one point 5 million americans applied for coverage submitting applications,000 for themselves and members of their families. 98% of those who have applied through federal and state approximately one point four 8 million people, have received an eligibility determination. they learned whether they are eligible for the marketplace or whether they qualify for lower costs or whether they are eligible for medicaid or chip. almos
the department of health and human services compared this to the state marketplace rollout in massachusetts. we also heard the white house comparing it to that state as well. they did lower expectations yesterday. >> no one will be satisfied with the numbers, because they will be low what we sought prior to the launch. >> looking forward senate democrats will meet with administration officials today while house lawmakers are looking to vote on a bill tomorrow allowing insurance companies the option of continuing existing plans for a year. we will see. heather, ainsley, back to you guys. >> elizabeth prann reporting live for us. thank you. >> senator cruz plans to repeal obamacare. when asked his plan here's what he had to say. >> in the coming weeks i intend to layout a plan to repeal obamacare all together and at the same time expand options for the 5 million plus people who have lost their health insurance and 300 million people to expand their options to have affordable personal affordable healthcare. >> he calls it heartbreaking so many americans are being hurt by the healthcare law and sai
